  1. 1. Experimental Designs at the Crossroads of Drug Discovery

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kemi

    Author : Ing-Marie Olsson; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chemometrics; Design of experiments; Experimental design; Multivariate data-analysis; D-optimal design; 96-well technology; Drug discovery; Assay optimisation; QSAR; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : New techniques and approaches for organic synthesis, purification and biological testing are enabling pharmaceutical industries to produce and test increasing numbers of compounds every year. Surprisingly, this has not led to more new drugs reaching the market, prompting two questions – why is there not a better correlation between their efforts and output, and can it be improved? One possible way to make the drug discovery process more efficient is to ensure, at an early stage, that the tested compounds are diverse, representative and of high quality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimisation of Chemotherapy Treatment in Advanced Colorectal Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Eklundshof Grafiska AB

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignant diseases in Sweden – more than 5000 new cases are diagnosed each year. The overall five-year survival is about 60% and in cases of recurrence the prognosis is poor. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimisation of dengue diagnostic tools in order to increase the knowledge of the pathogenesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Gunnel Lindegren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Dengue fever (DF) is the most common global viral mosquito-borne infection, with 100 million estimated cases annually in tropical and subtropical areas. The dengue viruses (genus Flavivirus, Flaviviridae) occur in 4 serotypes (DENV-1 to DENV-4). Dengue diseases range from a mild febrile disease to severe hemorrhagic fever. READ MORE

  4. 4. Estimation of acute toxicity by using the differentiated neuronal progenitor C17.2 cell model

    University dissertation from Department of Neurochemistry, Stockholm University
